Re: EOY 2015 Albums Spreadsheet Update

Thanks for taking the time to undertake such a laborious and cumbersome endeavor guys. There is no better resource for finding quality music than AM.

Re: EOY 2015: Village Voice Pazz & Jop Poll (Coming Jan. 13)

Does Village Voice poll pretty much poll every music critic in America? Seems that way by the sheer number of voters. Is this why Pazz & Jop's final tally sways a bit towards the mainstream relative to AM's year-end tally?

Doesn't Metacritics' tally have a slight edge over AM pertaining to the number of lists included?

Very happy to see Carrie & Lowell do so well with the international critics. Can anyone explain the album's astounding international reception?

Re: EOY 2015 Albums Spreadsheet Update

Any chance if Kendrick Lamar could unseat Kanye from AM's most acclaimed artist of the 2010s? You mean on this very update? I think that's impossible; MBDTF is extremely high, Yeezus and Watch the Throne have a respectable rank, and Kanye also has loads of acclaimed songs from the 2010s, a few of t...

Re: EOY 2015 - Pitchfork (USA)

D'Angelo could take the album of the year from him. Pitchfork had 2 songs from Black Messiah, so he is most definitely in contention.

Re: EOY Albums: Checklist of Sources

@Jeff Don't you feel that a poll as large as the Village Voice annual roundup would eventually lead to a very middle brow, conservative, and somewhat mainstream outcome? Last year's VV poll included 600+ voters, and I highly doubt that all of them have eccentric or refined tastes. For example, last ...

Re: EOY 2015 Songs Spreadsheet Update

Oh my bad. I might have been confusing AM poll with Metacritic's annual year-end critics list roundup for that year.

Re: EOY 2015 Songs Spreadsheet Update

The Blacker the Berry will most likely move up I reckon; we still have a lot more lists to go. Kendrick Lamar is absolutely slaying the albums spreadsheet though. I'm guessing his album will be the most dominant number 1 since My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy.

Re: EOY Albums: Checklist of Sources

Just curious, of all the major end-of-year polls and lists published, which ones are generally considered the most esteemed and respected? I mean it's safe to assume that some sources are 'better' or more high brow in nature than others. I am a big film fan and there are a certain group of EOY polls...

Re: EOY 2015 Albums Spreadsheet Update

I fail to understand why critics don't wait till the end of the year to post their EOY lists. Film critics are equally guilty of that as well; recently the Sight and Sound poll (one of the most elitist and high-brow film polls) announced the best films of 2015 in November, despite the fact that a wh...

Re: EOY Albums: Checklist of Sources

Hello, I'm a newbie here! I wanted to ask if some sources are weighted more heavily in the compilation of the EOY lists? For example, a poll such as the P&J- which has around 600 voters- should in my opinion be weighed in more heavily than a poll which has fewer voters. Would really appreciate a...
